Wireless Internet Connections...

Hi people,
I have a wireless router/modem at home and at work. I am wondering if there is a program out there that will show me if computers are using my internet connection.
Thanks for your replies.

Already a feature of your router.

It has a status page that will show what's connected.

Why add another program?

Well, here at home, I don't use it because I figure it uses resources sitting in the system tray if I do use it & at work, I don't know the web page address to access that one anymore. The boss set that one up. I do know the key I need to enter to hook up the wireless computers there though.

How can that be?

Most use a browser. Browsers use resources so how to reduce that?

In closing, that issue was not in your initial post so it must not be important?

When I wrote the og posting, I didn't even think of the program that I use to set up the router/modem.
